Green Grilled Cheese
Recipe type: Lunch
Serves: 1 sandwich
  • ¼ of a medium avocado
  • Squeeze of lime juice
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 4 thin onion slices
  • 1 handful of fresh spinach
  • 1 medium Portobello mushroom (or other mushroom slices)
  • 2 slices of whole-grain bread
  • 2 slices tomato
  • 1 slice of Swiss cheese
  1. Place the avocado and lime juice in a small bowl. Mash together until slightly chunky.
  2. Spray a skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add the onion slices and cook for several minutes, or until soft and translucent. Add a large handful of spinach to the same pan as the onion, and cook, stirring constantly, until the spinach begins to wilt. Remove from pan.
  3. Wipe the mushroom clean with a paper towel. Remove the stem and gills. Slice the mushroom into long strips.
  4. Spray the same pan with cooking spray. Add mushroom strips. Cook until mushrooms darken and get soft. Remove from pan and set aside.
  5. To make the sandwich: spray one side of each slice of bread with olive oil cooking spray. Place one piece of bread in a pan (sprayed side down) over medium heat. Layer onto the bread the mashed avocado, tomato slices, one slice of cheese, onion, spinach, and mushrooms.
  6. Let cook until the bread is toasted and the cheese begins to melt. Add the other piece of bread on top, sprayed side up. Carefully flip sandwich and cook until other slice is toasted. Enjoy!
